Do you enjoy tinkering with systems and like to take complex data puzzles into simple steps or processes? That’s exactly what you will be doing in this Challengership for the sustainability sector.

In fact, you will delve into client questions and solve them with your expertise. Think of:

  • How to support a company in the energy transition, including their supply chains?
  • How to calculate equal pay?
  • How to gain insights from all the ESG data collected?
  • How to use GenAI to collect, analyse & report ESG data more easily?

There are over 500 ESG data points per company, but most of the data exists in Excel sheets only.  The challenges that todays world faces are way too complex to be solved only via Excel. That’s why you will learn to work with the newest technologies to gain deep insights in better ESG reporting and solutions.

You will do this for the organization PwC: one of the largest consulting firms advising and assisting organizations on ESG: Environmental, Social & Governance. You will work in a mixed team of developers, consultants and specialists, with whom you will help clients with ESG reporting and analysis to arrive at the most sustainable solution.
